away through hospital downsize closure or basically raise taxes locally and support these needed services. we don't have to see this happen. but right now the gridlock in washington is stopping us from getting to a solution that allows these essential services to be provided to everyone because everyone in the community depends upon it. >> brian, that's a really important point. not just poor americans but americans who need health coverage. living in new york city, living in other places across the country, nobody likes to see local hospitals shuttered. it's actually a very emotional thing for a community for a hospital to close its doors. i think that has a profound impact, actually, in terms of this ideological stance that republican governors have taken. >> this is going to sound bloodless to me but a what we're setting up is an expert where the politics of supporting obama care and the ideological tension on the right, whether you should tax wealthy people to finance, subsidize poor people is going to come into conflict with constituent issues. should we be shuttering that d

how much it should tax and spend. so much lesser ability here than mandela and his opponents achieve. a narcissism, such a crisis in south africa it was necessary to come together and give big things up. in the united states they think they can get everything because the gap between what they want and their opponents want is so small. >> we're made to feel they are much larger. the white house, organizing thesis of this administration, i feel like obama is at his best when he's speaking about moral arc of the history, the sort of big historic theme of the moment. he's much bigger -- he has hindsight almost as events unfold. i think he's been incredibly shortchanged by media landscapes and the way information is dispersed, completely without analysis and the way politics are conducted these days, which is very reactionary. i think obama has a much better sense of his presidency and how history will treat it than anybody else does. >> he does like to have the after body experience on his own life,ous floating above. that can be helpful, strategic, deeply frustrating for people who want

tax exemption. it was never made clear. why shouldn't we expect the worst. my rule in politics, if it's better than it looks they will fix it. if it's worse they will make it stand. if they thought better they should have made it. that's the job of a politician. just for a second i want to point out something. i haven't heard anything as smart as what i heard reverend sharpton say in five years. that is the most perceptive thing i've seen. the difference f.w. de klerk handled the need for change and inevitable election, democratic election of nelson mandela, truly legitimate for nelson mandela, he was never legitimately elected. for him to recognize his role in history as a patriot at that point so different than the way mitch mcconnell handled the election of obama. so different. to set it up that way, the juxtaposition, they were willing, mcconnell people on the far right were willing to destroy the country to destroy obama. whereas to succeed in a country he live f.w. de klerk was wi to see it transformed to black rule so it could be done successfully so he could have his countr

basically -- the election was one of how bad could he be. i think he'll keep the taxes down. he wasn't really interrogated as a person. there was no one asking, does he smoke crack. that was not a campaign issue. >> apparently it now needs to be one. what i also loved, jamal, he said he would be a republican to which i would say, gop, here is your man north of the border. here is a guy who looks down and says that's who i identify in. >> absolutely. i hope he shoes up with campaign ads. when i wamp this i can't help but think we know we're at a sign of apocalypse when ron ford is interviewed by ron burgundy. >> the apocalypse right on my doorstep but may not be too far away with anchorman a few weeks a away. >> not a bad dude, that is the cynicism, reverse cynicism we love and know from you. >> i don't want to talk about it. >> i want to say this. this factors into we will laugh about him, continue to laugh about him. i think it's seriously bad for civil service to have people like rob ford in office. i want to read this excerpt from atlantic, important to bear this in mind. dow

it was said there's 100 to $150 million of uncollected taxes. you go back 10 years ago using the same numbers, it's not realistic. number one, a lot of those people are businesses that are no longer here. we need the number as it relates to taxes. the same thing holds true for empty houses. i see the number constantly at 78,000. that's not a right number. it's a moving number on a monthly basis but it's not near to 78,000. >> when you say -- >> that was detroit mayor dave bing speaking on the ruling moments ago that detroit can file chapter 9 bankruptcy. he'll be joining us later this hour. but first "twelve days of christmas" and only eight days of congress. it's december 3rd and this is "now." don't call it a comeback. house of representatives back in washington this week presumably to resolve pressing legislative issues but more likely to waste taxpayer dollars fighting over the same old stuff they have been fighting about all along. as typical congress has given itself very little time to get anything done. the two chambers are in session together for just four more days this

because one side of the aisle cannot agree on anything other than keep taxes low and somehow trickle down economics are going to solve all our problem. in that way the president's speech is incredibly forceful, spoken in an empty room. i don't know that the people that need to listen to it are even listening or responding. >> they aren't listening. one, because they don't like the message. two, they don't like the messenger. you said something important epa folks need to hear again, the president's speech about income inquagt quality, this is something the president has been talking about since before he was president. this is consistent. i think what's changed now is the country has moved to a place where now they are ready to hear this message and want something done about it. the only problem is the other side. >> on that skeptical note we'll take a break. president obama is headlining a group of former u.s. presidents, dignitaries and heads of states who will attend tomorrow's memorial for nelson mandela while senator ted cruz is headlining a group of two dozen members of
